Awesome shot Mark!!! did you go to the Zoo today?

I was lucky to find my little Lynx Spider again today. Too bad he was in my dark hallway and not outside

No, we have a little Museum in Durham called the Museum of Life and Science... they have wolves, bears, and these lemurs. The lemurs come from the Duke Primate Center, which I believe is a fairly important lemur rehabilitation/protection center. Eventually Hanna and I will make an appt. to go to the primate center and take photos of the lemurs.

There's also a place around here somewhere called the Carnivore Trust (or something), and they have tigers, lions, and cool cats like that.

It was too effing hot to go to the zoo (~100 degrees and 85% humidity. Also, the zoo is about 1.5 hours away).

:lol:

Thanks guys. That's actually a crappy shot IMHO, we're just having an issue with uncleating the jibsheets on the little boat... So that was an attempt at moving the cleat, but notice the car is the wrong size for the track? And they don't make that part (eye with cleat) for our track size... The issue is the cleat is on the block like this:
http://hallspars.com/images/Harken%5Cmed%5CHAR-2616%20med.jpg
and when my dad is trimming jib he has a hard time uncleating it because the cleat moves with the block and then once uncleated it has a bad habbit of recleating. :unamused: Moving it to go through the car/eye after that block would work because cleats that are mounted on something firm don't have that problem, but it's funny, when he's driving, I don't have the issue either... :whatever: We're going to try flipping the cleat for now and see if that works, if not it's on to traveler controls but they'll need to be heavily modified to work (read it'll take a few weeks and cost $$$).
